Screw that, I always said the same thing. A lot of crap that is advertised is sexist (like cleaning products) as hell, they need some actually real world representation, shoot.

You're right! I should write to Kellogg's and express how very disappointed in them I am that they claim parents approve of their cereals because as a parent who does not approve of empty calories going into my child, I am terribly offended and I know I'm not the only parent who feels this way.

They should remove that slogan so I don't have to feel bad because other parents will look at me and think I approve of their crap.

You know what? I bet they won't do anything.

Maybe I'd get more traction if I claimed it was bad for little diabetic children or celiac children or something.

So when her parents Anne-Marie, 48 and James, 47, told her to write and complain - that's exactly what she did. Her letter to the cereal giant was so convi


It wasn't a 10 year old.

IT was parents abusing their kid with their political bullsnip.

I learned that you are more likley to get heart disease or cancer if you skip breakfast, so I just eat a banana every day for my breakfast !

I used to eat cereal every day as a kid until I discovered coffee and cigarettes when I was 15 then that was my breakfast right up until I was about 21 then I changed to no food and coffee and then changed to just banana
coffee just fills you with acidity and ruins your ph balance !

BS. If you actually take the time to think about what was said the GIRL had an issue and her mother showed her the avenue to follow:


Hannah-Marie, a Year 6 pupil from Bournemouth, Dorset, said: 'My mum was away so I was just with my dad when I saw it on the cereal box.

'It made me think that dads should be included as well because they are important too.

'Also some people don't have a mum and they might find it upsetting.'

Hannah-Marie spoke to her parents about the slogan and they told her she could write to the company if she wanted.


Ohh, those bad parents.

They are.

There's any number of things they could have done.

Buy different cereral or pour it in a different container.

But they didn't.

They acted like snowflakes and expected the world to get on their knees for them.

Again BS. The girl brought an issue to them and they told her what she COULD do... and she did. The only snowflakes I see here are those that have a problem with a girl thinking for herself.

Bs?

In the real world people don't always get what they want.

Sooner a 10 year gets that the better off.

I agree, the biggest outrage is in this thread by folk whining that a child wrote a letter.
I also agree with the girl about the outdated 'by mums' thing, but I don't personaly care enough to write any letters to businesses.
Did you read the poster above calling it abuse by the parents? Lmfao! That is being a total snowflake!

She's 10. She already doesn't always get what she wants. Apparently that doesn't stop her though. Kudos to her. Bah to those that would stifle her spirit.

Don't make it not true
How long you gonna cry?

Bad parents cause they told their kid to write a letter expressing her opinion.

And the big bad dudes on the right cry.
For pages

It's great
